Mary Love Hodges from Brooklyn Rail said some very kind things about The Tank !

“New York is full of special finds—the perfect cup of coffee, vintage clothing steal, or niche bookstore is often tucked into some unsuspecting nook in the city. One of my favorite examples is The Tank. Located right down the street from some of the biggest Broadway sensations, The Tank is home to two small theaters that showcase a mind-bending assortment of live performance and multimedia work from emerging artists, and nurtures a vibrant, creative community. It’s become one of my favorite places to see dance, and with the average ticket price at $7, it’s one of the most affordable destinations in midtown.

The Tank, on 45th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, feels a lot like Brooklyn once you get inside. Its houses remind me of the many music venues dotting our outer borough, crossing barbès’s tiny, intimate space with the old Northsix’s dark open one. Like those stages, live musicians are often on the bill, even for events listed as theater, dance, or puppetry (Puppet Playlist, a series partnering puppeteers and musicians, has become one of the most popular of The Tank’s repeating events). The vibe is arty and relaxed, not pretentious. Because there is usually more than one show per night, you may end up clustered in the lobby pre-performance, but you can buy a beer while you wait.”
